The Synopsis for I Am Not Your Negro (2017) 1080p

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.

"I am not your Negro": An unrestrained portrait of Race in the United States

"I am Not Your Negro", The James Baldwin documentary, is an unrestrained portrait of race in the United States. That is no surprise since it is based on his life and writings. From his life in France to his last works and speeches, this movie takes us on a journey with Baldwin and his lessons of historical racism.

The film looks at media portrayals of race, from the Black mama, to the slave, to heroes like Sydney Poitier whom for White liberals was the definition of the acceptable, strong black male. However, for many Blacks, Poitier was the figure that allowed Whites to forgive themselves, as Baldwin writes. His roles allowed Whites to believe they weren't racist, cause hell, they liked this Poitier fellow.

The famous quote goes, "The story of the negro in America is the story of America." Baldwin doesn't mean all history, he means the real history that you won't read in the history books. He means the tragic tale that made America possible, from slavery to segregated schools, to the military and the prison industry.

The movie made my head hurt, just like what happens when I read Baldwin. So many of his lines have so much in them. They are multi-layered pictures of reality. They are unflinching in its condemnation not only of the racists but of the liberals that congratulate themselves that they don't use the wrong words or that they have Black friends or associates. But, as Baldwin points out, these liberals don't bother to cross the street to have dinner with Black families. The movie is dense like a rich cake that changes flavor the more you eat.

During the film, Samuel Jackson reads Baldwin's words about Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers, all people Baldwin knew well. We also see footage of his discussions on race and from a very interesting interview with him on the Dick Cavett show. Cavett missteps with some questions to Baldwin, but from the clips we saw, Cavett was smart enough to let Baldwin explain his position. When a philosopher comes on the show and contradicts Baldwin's views on race, Baldwin eloquently explains why this man is incorrect on race because "his is a view of what he wants things to be, not of things as they are."

Interspersed throughout the film are scenes of modern day conflicts between Black communities and police: riots, beatings, killings from Ferguson and elsewhere while Jackson reads Baldwin's words. Clearly, Baldwin's words are still relevant today.

Rating: Pay Full Price, see it Twice.

There is nothing I can criticize here. Baldwin's words, the use of archival footage, the music, the editing were all spot on. And Samuel Jackson reads Baldwin's words nearly flawlessly.

Peace, Tex Shelters

An amazing use of cinematography and historical footageReviewed byTJVote: 10/10

Note that the reason this is 5/10 stars right now is that there is a large bloc of people who have given it 1 star (presumably the white supremacist crowd). There is no way that anyone who believes in the need to tell black history would give this anything less than an 8/10.

This cinematography was absolutely incredible, the use of historical footage to stitch together a narrative of the Civil Rights movement combined with recent footage makes this movie incredibly timely. James Baldwin proves a brilliant orator, and the story takes you through both his life and his relationships with Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers. This movie tells more black history than I learned in my entire public school education, and should be seen by everyone.

View at your own risk, it looks like they want you to hate people.Reviewed byzehaasVote: 2/10

I saw this on a DVD screener and You have to love Samuel's narration. I enjoy his astronomy documentaries. This film doesn't know what it wants to be. Is it a documentary or just a hate-filled rant against the wrong people? I'm an autistic black man, myself. Maybe there is something I'm not getting, but I don't blame any white people for my problems. All that racial stuff in the movie happened decades and decades before anyone alive today. Most of my doctors are white (and one lady from Jordan) and they are AWESOME. If you look for the good in people, you will find it in all colors(including Whites).

I think it is important to have a historical perspective, but you have to do it without blaming your neighbor now. Did anyone read the bible? Love thy neighbor. If there is someone specifically who does me wrong, I don't blame his entire race. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I say LOVE, not HATE.
